71 – On February 3, 2018, Jorrit Bruinsma (Netherlands) produced 71 perfectly formed bubble rings on a single breath of air in a tank at the DuikVaker Exhibition, in Houten, The Netherlands. It took Bruinsma 2 min. 24 sec. to complete the record setting dive at a depth of 70 cm (27.6 in.). In order to qualify, each bubble ring must reach the surface intact from a minimum depth of 61 cm (24 in.) before bursting. The depth was verified with a tape measure from the top of Bruinsma’s weight-belt to the surface of the water. In addition to being live-streamed, the record event was supervised by four witnesses positioned at the top and sides of the tank to count the bubble rings and to ensure Bruinsma did not rise above his starting position. The bubble ring final count was done by video analysis from above the tank in order to eliminate any bubbles that did not make it to the surface intact.
